Here she is...my little tribute to the purple crayon:
~ She invited 65 of us to pick one of eight basic crayon colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown or black.
~ Then, we had to create a monochromatic design with the color we picked...focusing on a few or a lot of that color's hues.
~ The cool part is that it's not just about jewelry...she opened it up to any medium! That's what got me started thinking about painting and mixed media

After studying it and thinking about using it as the background of a collage, I decided to go down a different path and try something I've been wanting to do for a while: make a kaleidoscope image. I used this tutorial from the Scrapper's Guide that I found a few months ago. I was scared to try it, but it ended up being pretty easy and I'm tickled with the end result.
